One of the most important assets we need during and following menopause is a sense of humour. Sometimes it is the only thing that gets us through a particularly “disturbing” and sometimes demoralizing view of ourselves.
Remember the days when we complained about having to shave our legs, pits and crotches. Seems every time I turned around, I was pulling out the razor. Rapidly growing body hair was particularly annoying when I caught a few peeking out of my bathing suit. Like it wasn’t bad enough that there was barely enough material to cover my larger than life rear end!
With menopause, we experience thinning of our luxurious manes, and in many cases, the loss of much of our bodily hair. But don’t throw away the razor yet!!!! Here comes the best part. What falls off our legs, arms and crotches, reappears on our faces!! Don’t panic. It’s not black and curly. It’s more like fine peach fuzz that covers the face – like a carpet of sorts.
So what do we do? Well, for starters, we dispose of the 10X magnifier mirrors. Years ago, we needed those unflattering, despicable things to tweeze our eyebrows, or – perish the thought – to pluck away an unsightly zit. No longer necessary girls. GET RID OF THEM.
Next, use soft light around your mirrors, and NEVER use heavy foundation or lots of powder. If it’s really bothersome, you can always rely on your esthetician for help.
Finally, and most importantly, appreciate the fact that you reached this stage of life. Appreciate the fact that you have loved ones and good friends with whom to share your stories and laugh out loud! It is a gift that gets us through a lot of the little tricks life in general, and Menopause in particular, play on us.
